If You Have The Chill Friend, You’re Really Lucky

If You Have The Chill Friend, You’re Really Lucky

Do you have a super relaxed friend who you love to be around?

Do you find yourself regularly thinking about how chill and calm they are?

If this sounds like you, you are a very lucky person.

If you have found a friend who brings peace and tranquillity to your life whenever you speak to them, let them know how much you appreciate them. If you have found a friend who dislikes drama and fighting, cherish them. If you have found a friend who you can always go to for advice, never let them go.

Your chill friend will change your perspective on life without you even realizing. They will show you no judgement, only love and positive emotions. They will be one of the best friends that you ever have – and here are 10 reasons why.

1. The chill friend doesn’t hold on to little things

It doesn’t matter if you had a disagreement the day before – your chill friend will never hold it against you. They understand that everyone disagrees sometimes, and the friendship is far too important to end over something so silly.

2. The chill friend is non-judgemental

Often people are overly critical of themselves and others around them, but not your chill friend. They always try to see the best in other people, and they would never judge you for doing something that they disagree with.

3. The chill friend dislikes arguing

The chill friend hates petty arguing – if there is a problem, they will bring it up without any negative emotions. You much prefer the drama-free discussion to a childish fight.

4. The chill friend doesn’t care if there is a change of plans

Your chill friend is always happy to go with the flow – you never have to worry about annoying them with a change of plans.

5. The chill friend gives you your space

They don’t probe you for extra details about your personal life if you don’t want to talk about it. The chill friend respects your boundaries, and they understand that your life and past isn’t their business. This doesn’t mean they aren’t involved in your life; if you ever needed to talk about something they would always be there to listen.

6. When you are stressed out, you seek advice from your chill friend

If you are having a hard day the first person you contact is your chill friend. They have a way of looking at the world that helps you to calm down and focus on the bigger picture.

7. The chill friend doesn’t like making people feel bad

The chill friend takes no pleasure in saying “I told you so.” They don’t like making people feel bad or upset, and they would much rather feel like they are equal to their friends.

8. The chill friend never expects the relationship to be a certain way

The chill friend doesn’t have any expectations for your friendship (or you). They are happy to let the relationship happen naturally, without forcing certain things. They understand that the relationship is out of their hands, and the best thing to do is to just go with the flow.

9. The chill friend makes you feel more chilled, too

Spending time with your chill friend has helped you to become a more relaxed and positive person. Whenever you become upset, angry or stressed you think about your friend and it helps you to relax. After all, if they can live life with such a great attitude, why can’t you?

10. The chill friend can’t be replaced

You hope that your friendship with the chill friend will last for a very long time. They are there for you whenever you need them, and you always try to support and love them. You appreciate their presence in your life and you know that you are a better person for knowing them.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
